The image to the right encompasses our mission in the sustainable effort and has been designed to appear on our 100% compostable show bag debuting this month!
Each new Affordable, Earth-Friendly line is Sustainable (designed to meet current needs without compromising the needs of future generations), using the 3R approach of Reduce (practice of doing the same or even more with less – excellent way to lessen the burden of consumption), Reuse (ability to use packaging more than once – for the same or new purpose) & Recycle (local level curb side collection/compostable: back to nature).
Utilizing one or more elements of the 3R approach to minimize waste, please find below, the defining attributes allowing each new line to be considered sustainable…
Harvest Fiber (Bowls, Plates, Containers, Tray)
Reduce: Produced using 100% natural and annually renewable resources, reducing the dependence on non renewable resources! Recycle: Compostable! Returned back into nature in the form of rich, useful compost used for soil enhancement.
Harvest Starch (Bowls, Plates, Containers & Utensils)
